FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ANDY FIELD MAGIC:
WHO IS MAGICIAN ANDY FIELD?
I am a professional award winning wedding and party magical entertainer who has been performing magic for over twenty years. My YouTube videos have over 5 million views and I am the most watched YouTube magician in the UK. Television programs use my magic skills and videos in their productions.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR TYPE OF MAGIC ANDY.
I am a close up magical entertainer. This means I use the skills of my hands to create moments of pure astonishment right under your nose! I perform to groups of people who are standing or seated around tables. Most of my act consists of original magic I have created myself and I use everyday objects such as playing cards, money, rope, rings and other borrowed items to perform magic that will knock your socks off and that you will remember for a very long time – guaranteed!
WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR OUR WEDDING OR PARTY ANDY?
I can perform amazing magic to entertain throughout your day such as during the photo call, room changes, drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts, evening receptions or any times where you feel appropriate! I can perform to one person or to large groups. I can perform walking around mixing and mingling or at tables where people are seated. Either way I break the ice!
CAN YOU DO ANY MAGIC FOR THE CHILDREN ANDY?
Certainly! Most magicians feel it beneath them to entertain a few little ones, or feel it undermines their adult magic act. (Some magicians have delicate egos). My attitude is I am an entertainer so why not show the children a trick or two. After all this is how most magicians themselves got bitten by the magic bug! So, yes I can show them a little bit of magic. However, if it’s a larger act you want then try contacting a children’s magician. A great time to use them to entertain the children is during the wedding speeches.
NO DISRESPECT ANDY BUT HOW DO WE KNOW YOU ARE ANY GOOD?
I am glad you asked. This is such an important point! Anyone can create a website and fill it with impressive text such as “The World’s Greatest Magician”. However, videos are very difficult to fake. Search my website and check out my videos to see samples of my magic in action and you will see some strong magic and people enjoying themselves. My YouTube channel has millions of views and my magical skills and knowledge have also been used for television productions. Plus, I have years of experience as a wedding and party magic and I have strong showmanship skills. So, to answer your question, the chances are you are in very safe professional hands! (Magic hands naturally!) Being a magician is more than just doing a trick. It is about having an engaging personality combined with strong showmanship as well as being able to perform strong and powerful magic. This only comes with years of experience and is a very good reason to avoid budget priced magicians.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL ANDY?
Anywhere in the UK! Do not worry about my travelling expenses; I take care of this. Besides you are paying for my magical and entertainment skills and not my petrol! (Actually I have a flying magic carpet that runs on LPG gas!)
WHAT IS YOUR FEE ANDY?
My fee is determined by various factors. I will always try and give you best competitive quote that I can so please contact me and tell me a little about your event such as times, dates and the number of guests you anticipate.
OUR VENUE WANTS TO KNOW IF YOU ARE INSURED ANDY?
Yes, I am. Some venues like to see PLI (Public Liability Insurance). I am insured for up to one million pounds in case something very unfortunate should happen. To be honest though I am unable to remember the last time I seriously injured anyone during a card trick! However, I did suffer a paper cut myself on one occasion to my index finger! Anyway, having PLI is the right and professional thing to have these days.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU ANDY?
Try to book as early as possible. Most people on average book me around six months in advance but for peak wedding season months I suggest you book as early as you can because this way you can get the time slots you really want and avoid disappointment. I require a deposit to secure the date. As long as I have the deposit we can firm up any details later.
HAVE YOU EVER MISSED A WEDDING OR PARTY ANDY?
Of all the thousands of weddings I have performed at I have never missed one so far. Touch wood. However, if I am incapacitated in some way shape or form I have a manager who can supply another professional magician for the same fee. (Will not be as good looking as me though).
Also, as I travel around, I am always careful to leave myself plenty of time to arrive early so I can settle in and prepare myself. The last thing I want to do is arrive at your venue at the eleventh hour dripping in sweat all hot and bothered! (Erase that mental image!)
WHY DOES EVERY MAGICIANS WEBSITE SAY AWARD WINNING?
I think it’s because some of them have a swimming certificate at home. Some magicians do have some very prestigious awards indeed. It is best to ask the magician to clarify what their award is for.
CAN YOU TELL US THE WINNING LOTTERY NUMBERS?
Yes I can. Though not the specific week that they are due!!
CAN YOU MAKE MY WIFE VANISH ANDY?
Sorry, but she’s already asked me the same thing about you!
